Scared I have pancreatic cancer 32 male

Posted , 4 users are following.

I live everyday in fear and worry. I have normal blood tests and went to emergency room for side pain. Dr told me could be kidneys or gall stones they did a CT scan and saw nothing. Would they have seen anything else wrong looking at the results.

    I would say yes. The ct scan of the abdomen will show liver, pancreas, spleen and kidneys as well as a few other things. It's hard not to worry when there is something wrong. I'm in the same boat as you. Take reassurance that it won't be pancreatic cancer. You are far too young to have it. Almost all cases are in people over 45 and the majority of it is in people over 60. Do you have any other symptoms other than pain in your side?

    I would definitely give up alcohol and eat a very low fat healthy diet if I were you. I have had many tests and seen many doctors about my abdominal pain. Nothing they did has helped me, but giving up alcohol, and changing my diet has helped tremendously. I also cut out coffee and chocolate and processed foods. Also, overeating is bad too.
